• Baldwin Ahlbrandt New Corona Extrude and Electrodes
    • Baldwin introduces Ahlbrandt Corona innovations for plastic film extrusion and converting

      Solutions designed for maximized uptime and high-quality, food-grade and clean room applications

      ST. LOUIS — October 1st, 2019
      — Ahlbrandt System GmbH – A Baldwin Technology Company, reveals Corona innovations engineered for plastic film extrusion and converting applications at K 2019 in Dusseldorf, October 16-23, in Baldwin Technology’s booth C53, hall 4, K 2019.

      The new particle-free Ahlbrandt Corona electrodes prevent contamination from damaged or broken elements, an innovation that provides an advantage for clean rooms and those converting high-quality, food-grade plastic films. This novel design will be introduced in the Ahlbrandt Corona Pure, Pure XL, Flex, and Slim product lines.

      Also showcased at K 2019, is the new Ahlbrandt Corona Extrude which is a pretreatment system for blown film extrusion lines where it is essential to obtain a perfect surface tension prior to the finishing process. It features powerful metal electrode segments for a long lifetime operation.

      Thanks to the unique Ahlbrandt electrode designs, high pretreatment intensity is enabled on reactive film areas, which in turn leads to a continuously maintained treatment efficiency at optimal production speed without any impact from temperature variations during the production cycle. Additionally, the operator can easily access and flip the electrode segments; thereby, cutting service and maintenance time to a minimum.

      “We designed the Ahlbrandt Corona innovations with the high demands of film extrusion in mind, to maximize the process uptime and simplify operation. But not only that, also for a fast system delivery and installation. With the new electrode design and the Ahlbrandt Corona Extrude in our inventory, we can quickly deliver and commission.”, said Holger Bätz, Managing Director, Ahlbrandt.

      The slim and compact, yet durable design makes the innovations future-proof and easily integrated into new and existing production lines. The robust parts enable a long service life with minimal maintenance, increasing uptime and delivering optimal return on investment.

      In addition to the new Ahlbrandt Corona innovations, Baldwin Technology will showcase its FilmCylinderCleaner, Rotor Spray and Hot Air Drying solutions for the plastic film industry at the K 2019 exhibition.
